Abstract (en)

A vascular catheter having a central lumen (17) adapted to slidably receive a guidewire (16) therein with an inflatable collar (23) or other suitable means to releasably secure or fix the guidewire within the lumen so that the catheter and guidewire can be advanced through a patient's vasculature as a unit. The catheter system is particularly suitable in balloon dilatation catheters for use in percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty procedures.
